At Demandware, a key measure of our success is the growth and innovation within our community. Our clients inspire and motivate us, and together we push the boundaries of commerce beyond the status quo so our clients can revolutionize the way they engage with their customers.

That’s what the Demandware Commerce Pacesetter Awards are all about. The Awards, now in their third year, honor excellence in commerce and recognize the innovative work our clients do throughout the year to accelerate growth and meet the ever-increasing demands of today’s connected consumer. We will present recipients with the Award in each of three categories during a special session at our annual XChange Conference, which takes place in Hollywood, Florida on April 4-6th.

  • Fast Track Award
  • Sustained Growth Award
  • Innovative Customer Experience Award

Check out the video, below, for highlights from the 2015 Award presentation, which recognized GoPro, adidas Group, and Italian fashion retailer OVS SpA. In addition to the three aforementioned categories, the XChange audience of over 1,300 chose GoPro as the overall Community Choice Award winner.

GoPro, which received the Fast Track Award, launched ecommerce sites across North America, Europe and Asia, supporting nine languages and 13 currencies – all in 21 weeks.

adidas, which took home the Sustained Growth Award, has over four years launched 40 ecommerce sites and 22 non-transactional sites on the Demandware Commerce Cloud, enabling the company to grow its ecommerce sales by 110% year over year.

OVS, the Innovative Customer Experience Award winner, has integrated online and offline channels to enable a multi-touch customer experience. The results: an 81% increase in site traffic and 44% increase in conversion.
